Wednesday, with these Filled Bulb Ornaments I want to show how simple these ornaments can be. Ornaments don’t have to be complicated. Sometimes just filling them with interesting things from your craft room and adding some vinyl is enough to make a classy ornament. See all the ornaments I am making for ornament week here
What you will need
- Glass or plastic ornaments
- Little Styrofoam Balls
- Ribbon Confetti
Filling Your Ornaments
I found these Styrofoam balls at the dollar store and the ribbon confetti too. You could use stuff from your craft room. I have seen yarn or lace used. Ribbon works nicely too. Or for those of you that make jewelry some beads would look good. As long as they fit through the mouth of the ornament, any little trinket will do.
Decorating your ornaments
Most people like to put vinyl on their glitter ornaments. I have several designs in the download section. If you want something else, like names, there are a couple of things to remember. The ornaments are curved. For vinyl to lie flat don’t make your vinyl to solid or too rigid. The vinyl needs to be able to form around the curve.
I have also seen where people put lace, ribbon or bows on the outside of their ornaments. This is where you can make the ornaments truly yours. Use your imagination and have fun with it.
I get a small commission for the products in some of the links. This does not add to your price.
